Training

Training of Investigators and Survey Team

Training workshops were organized prior the start of surveys. Trainees were recruited amongst a pool of well experienced surveyors and laboratory technicians involved in past epidemiological studies.

In order to assess the levels of infection prevalence and intensities, and the distribution of the different species of schistosomes and STH, parasitological surveys were conducted in selected schools across the targeted health districts.

We believe that "Precision Mapping" is the innovative tool and way forward to shrink the map, better target our interventions, and accelerate toward the elimination of schistosomiasis in Cameroon
